Class Trips: More information on class trips coming soon.
All Regina Transit buses are equipped with easy to use bike racks. The racks are mounted to the front of each bus and hold two bikes. Easy to follow instructions are printed on the rack.
Load: Let cyclists who are getting off the bus remove their bikes from the rack before loading your bike. To load your bike, follow these steps:
- Stand in front of the bike rack and squeeze the yellow handle to release the latch. Fold the bike rack down.
- Lift your bike onto the rack, fitting the wheels in the wheel trays. Note that the position of the front wheel is marked on the tray.
- Pull the yellow support arm out and up over the top of the front tire to secure the bike in place.
Unload: About a block before your stop tell the bus operator that you want to get off at the next stop and that you will be unloading your bike. Exit the bus by the front door. To unload your bike, follow these steps:
- Pull the yellow support arm out and up over the tire to release it. Ensure the support arm clicks into place on the rack.
- Lift your bike out of the bike rack.
- Squeeze the yellow handle and fold the rack up into the locked position if the rack is empty and there is no one waiting to load their bike.
Move to the sidewalk and signal to the bus operator that it is okay for the bus to move out of the bus stop.
Note: Regina Transit is not responsible for damages incurred or caused by or to bicycles on Regina Transit property.
The Safe Bus program is a community partnership between the Regina Transit, Regina Crime Stoppers, and the Regina Police Service.
The Safe Bus program provides a safe space for anyone who needs help. If you are lost, hurt or in trouble, flag down a Regina Transit bus, or get on at any bus stop.
Teach your children that if they are lost, cold, frightened or hurt, they can hold up their hand (palm facing out) in the direction of an approaching bus to signal the driver that they need help. Bus operators are trained to recognize this as a sign of distress and will stop to help your child. You can download Regina Transit’s Safe Bus Colouring and Activity Book to help explain the Safe Bus program to your child.
Trained transit personnel have direct 9-1-1 access and you DO NOT need to pay a fare to get help through the Safe Bus program.
Our Night Stop program allows you get off the bus between regular stops on your route, so you don’t have to walk as far to your destination.
To request the Night Stop service:
- Inform your driver that you wish to get off at a different location at least 1 bus stop before your regular stop. You don’t have to ring the bell.
- Remain near the front of the bus until the driver finds a safe place to open the door and let you off. (In some instances, this may not be the exact spot you requested.)
- Exit the bus from the front door.
Under shared funding with the federal government, the City is spending $17.2 million to expand and enhance our transit system and to make it more inclusive and accessible to all residents.
Both the City and the federal government are each contributing $8.6 million under the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund. It’s a $3.4 billion fund made available by the federal government to support municipal transit systems across Canada.
Of the $17.2 million the City is spending, $14.3 was spent in 2017. Just over 22,000 mobility devices used conventional transit in 2017. That is a 519% increase from 2011!
The remaining $2.9 million will be spent in 2018.
Accessible Bus Stops: Regina Transit has six accessible bus stops located on 11th Avenue by the Cornwall Centre. These bus stops improve accessibility for customers with disabilities. The unique bus stops include:
- A yellow pole
- A yellow schedule holder indicating the route name and numbers that stop at that location
- A braille plaque indicating the route name and numbers stopping at that location
- Raised lettering information plaque
These unique features help persons with disabilities use and identify the bus stop. On 11th Avenue, we also have accessible heated bus shelters. Each shelter is powered by electricity and is large enough to accommodate a person using a mobility device. The light in the shelter comes on automatically when it becomes dark outside. Transit riders waiting for their bus can activate radiant heaters in the shelter by pushing a button. Also included is a braille "Push for heat" decal located beside the button. Once activated, the heat stays on for approximately five minutes.
All articles left on Regina Transit are brought to the Transit Information Centre by the next working day. You can call the Transit Information Centre at 306-777-RIDE (7433) from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to see if your lost item was found on the bus.
Please have the following information handy when reporting a lost item:
- Phone number (day/evening)
- Date and approximate time the item was lost
- Information about the bus or bus stop where the item was left (location of stop, bus route number/name)
- Description of the item (colour, size, type of material, model or serial number, or any other unique identifying marks)
With so many passengers travelling on a bus, it’s important that everyone follow these tips to make sure every trip is pleasant and comfortable.
- Stay visible and never walk directly in front of or behind a bus.
- Warn children not to play near buses or bus stops. Serious injuries can occur if children throw rocks at buses or hang onto the back bumper of buses to “ski” down icy streets in winter.
- Have your fare, R-Card, or transfer ready as the bus arrives.
- Obtain your transfer when paying your fare, not at the end of your trip.
- Board as quickly as possible and exit from the rear door of the bus.
- Leave designated priority seating available for seniors and those with limited mobility.
- Keep the aisle clear of bags, backpacks, and briefcases.
- Hold strollers securely or hold your child and fold the stroller during your trip.
- Use hand rails if you must stand.
- Move to the back of the bus to allow additional passengers to stand.
- Do not put your feet on the seats or allow young children to stand on the seat.
- Do not smoke, litter, or cause a disturbance while riding the bus. Aggressive behaviour and course language will not be tolerated.
- Place carry-on bags, backpacks, and other parcels under your seat or in your lap.
- Keep your arms and hands inside the bus.
Thanks for the Brake: The campaign encourages motorists to give buses a “brake” by slowing down to allow the bus to change lanes or merge into traffic more quickly when the bus has its left-signal light flashing.
